We arrived in La Paz at 5:30am (oh that familiar time again!) and we were lucky enough to be able to go straight to our hotel rooms. I didn’t sleep a huge amount on the bus although it was quite comfortable so I was super pleased to have a room even though I didn’t have enough time to sleep!!!
We headed out for breakfast early at one of the local markets. We were going to try the populate aci and pastel for breakfast. I was starving and couldn’t wait! When we got there I could have cried….Aci has cheese in it (cheese really guys?!) and pastel is a pastry filled with cheese and topped with icing sugar. I feel like South America is really against me with cheese!!!! So I sat there like a kicked puppy while everyone else ate.
After that, we were taken to book the next few days activities. I was so hangry by this point all conversation stopped. I booked as quickly as possible and stomped back to the hotel to raid my snack bag. I hadn’t eaten in hours, I had hardly drunk and sleep had been minimal….I was not a friendly person right then.
Luckily, the weather outside wasn’t great so I took the opportunity to stay installed in my hotel room. I got washing done, slept some, updated my blog, surfed the net and just generally chilled out until the evening.
In the evening, the group met for the last meal. Tomorrow we change guides and a few of the group are going their own way so we get some new people. We went to an English pub next to our hotel. I so gratefully tucked into a roast dinner – it was so good to have some vegetables!!!! I teamed that with a tasty peach and strawberry juice and I was ready for bed.
Tomorrow is another early start….I need to learn!!!!!
